Whiskeytown National Recreation Area receives many visitors looking to explore and discover the many tales of failure and success that came from the Town House Historic District in the northern goldfields of the California Gold Rush. Interpretive signs tell the story of the blacksmith shop that once stood a the crossroads of the “northern diggin’s”.

The Californian sun is especially harsh and punishing in the Summer. The challenge was to find a long lasting sign material that would withstand harsh elements, while preserving history through crisp, clear photos and text. The product also had to fit within the National Park Service identity guidelines.
